Social and Familial Determinants of Delayed Marriage for Women: A Case Study

Auther : Ibrahim M. Alobeidy - Abdulah H. Al-Khalifah

 

This study attempts to investigate the social factors and the family backgrounds, which affect the chances of women marrying before the age of 23. The sample consisted of 599 Saudi families in the city of Riyadh, and they were randomly selected and interviewed. The findings indicate those unmarried females of 23 years or older are more likely to be found in families with higher socio-economic status and longer residence in Riyadh.

The families are also likely to have a higher percentage of working women, and the women in the family have a higher than average level of education. The overall findings support previous research in this field, and are in agreement with the theoretical perspectives.
